Do people put duel exhaust on an automatic?

Hello! First time mustang and poster. I recently purchased a 2009 v6 auto and was wondering if people normally add dual exhaust. I wasn't sure if it is silly or not to try it or if that is a mod typically better of on a manual. Don't wanna get laughed at because it's an automatic. Would it sound much different than a manual? I'm not very mechanically inclined so am a bit unsure.

Thanks in advance!

Whether it's an auto or manual has no difference. It's more of a V8 vs V6 thing. The fact you have an auto has no bearing on what it will sound like though.

Lincoln MKZ 4 cyl 6 cel and hybrid has dual dual tips so there you go. I believe there are a ton of dual kits for the sixes. some include a new rear panel others don't.

yes people do put dual exhaust on V6's ; transmission is not relevant, as has already been mentioned

but please don't just make it loud; that can be really bad with a V6 . . . need to pay attention to the tone or "note" of the exhaust, more than the volume or loudness

On the 07 V6 I once had, I put a stock GT muffler on the one side,,,, It was enough for me, louder, but not to loud, and sounded good. Simple 20 minute install. I can't do it that easily with my 2011.

I put Ford Racing dua exhaust on a 2007 V6 that I previously owned. Had the dealer install them before I took possession of the car. Got lots of complements on the sound.

Don't waste your money on dual exhaust. Just get a GT takeoff muffler and run single. The only engine mod worth the money on a 4.0 V6 auto is a Bama tuner. Spend your dough on cosmetics, suspension and tires.

Dunno that auto vs. manual has anything to do with it, except that Ford does use different mufflers for auto vs. manual GTs, at least on S197s.


I can tell you that I decided about five minutes after buying my '08 automatic that, in my view, there are way too many wrong-wheel-drive, four cylinder econoboxes running around with duals (well, splitters really) for any Mustang to have a single, rusty tailpipe poking out on one side.


I went with a set of manual GT takeoffs myself. I think it improved both the looks and the sound substantially. As far as performance, eh, who knows? Maybe a minor improvement, along with slightly better gas mileage.


The downsides for me were; high cost (crazy expensive hangers), drone and buzzing inside (fairly well controlled with insulation under the rear seat and trunk mat), and annoyed neighbors.


Apparently quite a few folks have gone with single GT takeoffs. Very quick, easy, and usually dirt cheap swap for better sound and a nice polished exhaust tip.


YMMV!

Auto VS Stick with duals - Only difference is the sound of the shifts. While driving "Soccer Mom normal", shifting takes longer with a stick shift. Also, there is no appreciable "Downshift Deceleration Burbble" with an auto transmission.

The biggest hair in the Kahlua & cream with changing to duals on a V6 Mustang, is either cutting or replacing the rear bumper cover.

(If you've ever found a hair in your Kahlua & cream, you know how it is.)

(I just realized "Soccer Mom Normal" is an oxymoron.)
